Queerty is better as a member
Lame piece of news….what does his sexual orientation have to do with his charity skydiving?
@Sweet Boy: Not to mention he was naked. Neither seems to apply to terminally ill kids.
Have to agree with @Sweet Boy: The skydiver’s sexual orientation should be a non-issue. The part about surpassing his goal and getting inducted into a Society for the Advancement of Naked Skydivers is far more interesting.
I have to vehemently disagree with @Sweet Boy: His sexuality matters because he is a member of the LGBT community and he is doing something to try to help kids. Makes perfect sense to me. An LGBT interest story doesn’t have to be related to homophobia or our struggle for rights to be an LGBT interest story. We are a community. We have banded together as a people at least many of us have). We should take pride when one of our own does something like this. I didn’t see any of the same kind of complaining about the 16 year old gay boy who invented that early cancer detector when his story was featured here. Nobody said “what does his sexuality matter?” For which I am glad because it would have been as absurd to do over that story as it is to do over this story.
This is an LGBT blog. I think that is the relevance. The naked part was probably just for attention
I don’t really believe in the GLBT community. It’s an over-rated moniker.
@DarkZephyr: I agree. I’ve said it before, here on Queerty no less, that one of the most powerful weapons we have to combat homophobia is to be visible and continue to show that there are few things that separate us and a whole lot that we as people have in common.
I immediately distrust anyone who suggests that we need to be less visible, less proud and do more to fade into the background.
@jimbryant: Yet you believe in trolling GLBT sites and posting bitter comments like this. That’s soooo much classier.
His orientation might not be important for CNN but this is Queerty. It’s a gay site. Again, this is Queerty.
I can see I ruffled some feathers…I am gonna have a cup of gay tea with some gay cookies, while I sit on my gay kitchen by my gay window
@Sweet Boy: Sweet. :)
Nice guy. Cute. Doing a good thing for sick children. Having fun. Entertaining us a bit. What else matters?
@Sweet Boy: Why don’t you & @jimbryant: go stick your heads in a gay oven, turn on the gay gas, take a gay lighter & put us out of your misery.
@triryche3: I’ll do it if you grab a gay pineapple and stick it up you gay bunghole and then do a gay twerking
Somebody should have painted a Union Jack on his bum.
That just has to be the coolest thing EVER…Skydiving was on my bucket list and I screamed like a baby almost all the way down…If you ever do one crazy thing you have to try this…I was strapped to a pretty hot guy so it was cool…I love this guy…Super cute.
